Rafal Zajko’s MONO7 features moving image by 14 artists, Mar 1

1 March 2017

MONO7 is on at London’s Courtyard Theatre on March 1.

The moving image initiative, now in its seventh year, features videos by 14 artists, each five-minutes long. This year’s line-up includes contributions by Eva Papamargariti, Gery Georgieva, Nils Amadeus Lange, Natalie Price Hafslund, Jennet Thomas and Puck Verkade, among others.

A project run by Rafal Zajko, MONO aims to “show the breadth of contemporary video practices” and each edition is meant to grow organically out of the next, as artists from the previous show choose the next ones.

Jennet Thomas in Conversation @ Block 336, Oct 12

11 October 2016

Jennet Thomas will be in conversation with Simon O’Sullivan and George Vasey at London’s Block 336 on October 12.

Thomas, who is currently exhibiting new film The Unspeakable Freedom Device, will be discussing the work with Vasey, a writer and curator at Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and O’Sullivan, a theorist and artist who is part of collaborative group Plastique Fantastique and also a Professor of Art Theory and Practice in the Visual Cultures Department at Goldsmiths College.

Thomas’ new film creates a narrative that follows two women who “wrestle with the fascination and threat of techno-totalitarian supremacy personified by the all-powerful Blue Lady” and interconnects sculptural and painterly elements through a multi-media picture of an “absurd primitive-future world populated by a cast of uncannily familiar characters.”

Human Hive

27 June 2012

Skip blockbuster Prometheus. If you want to see a truly great sci-fi film head straight to SCHOOL OF CHANGE, British artist Jennet Thomas’ latest offering. Currently showing at Matt’s Gallery in suburban Limehouse, SCHOOL OF CHANGE is sharp social satire that interrogates our education system. The 40-minute musical is being screened within a huge sculptural installation that transports its audience to its dystopian world on screen.
